5.0 out of 5 stars THESE ARE NEW EPISODES FOR 2013 30 Nov. 2012
By Mark A. Costa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
These are all new episodes to air in 2013. The confusion arises from the fact that two of the SEASONS were merged into 1 SET in the states. Hence we have 6 "SETS" for 7 "SERIES" or "SEASONS". This NEW DVD covers the new episodes from the upcoming new SEASON 8.

Here is a statement from Acorn's own website --

"Series 8 ((which will likely be released as set 7 on DVD in the U.S.) will be set during the early period after World War II with Foyle focusing his attention on the world of espionage as he gathers secret intelligence in support of Britain's security, defense and the Government's foreign and economic policies. The stories will range from Foyle identifying highly placed atomic spies to a true story of government corruption. A world of transition where the values and certainties of the war have given way to austerity, exhaustion and doubts about the direction the new government is taking".

4.0 out of 5 stars Still A Great Show 22 May 2013
By misterweiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The UK DVD's have the proper series numbers. Series 7 just came out last week in the UK, and I got mine and watched it already


To correct some of the bad misinformation that's going on here, both the UK "series 7" and the US "set 7" are the same. I buy the UK versions (a region-free DVD player is needed) because they come out months sooner than the US versions. And many times, the US versions are edited. If the series was shown here on PBS, and there is a PBS logo on the front of the DVD (ie, Downton Abbey DVD's) they are edited usually. FYI, the episode titles for series 7 AND set 7 are: The Eternity Ring, The Cage, and Sunflower. Only 3 episodes. And longtime fans of the series will probably miss the Paul Milner character, played by Anthony Howell - he's not in this series. Honeysuckle Weeks returns as Sam, but no Milner.

It was nice to see Foyle again, but it's strange that he's taking orders from others, as he's working for the government instead of the police. The "old" Foyle that I know and love would have told them to bugger off instead of letting them recruit him so easily - literally after he just gets off the ship, returning from his trip to America. Buy Foyle does get to quietly correct and politely admonish his superiors, something he's very good at. He has a quiet strength about him. If you've seen Michael Kitchen in other roles, this role is not really a stretch for him, he really does speak and act that way.

This series deals more with the post war "cold war" that was also going on in England. It's a tad darker than the first 6 series I think. Even Sam has lost some of her youthful good nature, maybe that's down to struggling through the war and it's aftermath, I don't know, but she's not as cheerful this time out.

This series may not 100% up to par with the middle series of Foyle's War, but it's still a great show. The acting is great, and if you watch a lot of British TV shows, you'll know many of the actors by sight.

So again, in England, there are and have only been 7 SERIES of this show, no matter what US TV or Acorn US has done with the numbers. They are not "seasons" in the UK, they are series. Partly because they're very short series, and they can come and go at any time, not in the autumn like here in America (I lived in London for two years). Heck, there were 4 years between the 1st and 2nd series of Fawlty Towers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pre-Order 10 Nov. 2012
By Allen Westbrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
The series stands for itself in British Television quality in acting and production of this World War II Mystery series. It would be nice for Amazon or Acorn to let prospective buyers know how many episodes are included and perhaps total running time ? It might be helpful in selling it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Changes 1 July 2013
By Rissi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Outcry and popular demand brought about additional installments of the wildly popular crime drama Foyle's War chronicling the cases of a keen British detective protecting the home front while a world is at war. Penned by Anthony Horowitz, the most recent installments may honor the end of one war but begins the start of a new, equally threatening one.

England is not the same place it once was. The horrors of a second world war are still raw in the minds of the people and upon his return to his homeland Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) is reminded of the stark remnants. Just back from America, two things consecutively happen soon as he sets foot on British soil. He meets again with a former policeman he once worked with in Hastings just released from spending years as a POW and his services are requisitioned by MI5 leading him again into the acquaintance of the formidable Miss Pierce (Ellie Haddington). Disinterested in working for the government spooks, Foyle is compelled to help them uncover a Russian spy ring known as "The Eternity Circle" until he learns they are looking at Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks) as a suspect when presented with photographic evidence. Not believing that his former driver could in any way be involved, Foyle agrees to help MI5 in order to make sure no harm comes to Sam and her politically minded husband, Adam (Daniel Weyman).

Pushing forward in his investigation, Foyle learns that working among his colleagues involves learning the ins and out of politics - and that protecting the wrong people is MI5's business. He soon discovers there are more shady dealings going on inside the walls of the MI5 offices rather than out, and it becomes a question of figuring out who is trustworthy and who is not.

Nothing ever stays the same. This is something we know, but golly, it's hard when we have to wave good-bye to such a beautiful piece of nostalgia. And if we were honest, this series is just that. Not in the traditional sense, this series experienced a gripping identity to its stories and more poignant moments than any unsuspecting viewer would ever expect, we are now given a duller, less shiny version of that. Where it once managed to be quaint and terribly brilliant, it feels as if there's a weight on the shoulders of everyone. Seeing this come to a close was the end of an era and seeing it return (in 2011) was a joyous occasion, one that seemed unable be matched and upped. Now, a new year brought us three all new installments and people, oh my stars are you in for unexpected and sometimes, sad changes.

Instead of moving viewers with the things that easily humanized the stories - like the needless, tragic deaths of those on the home front - missing in these new installments is the same focus on people, now the angles zero in on political schemes and governments protecting former war enemies. It's a new mine field for everyone to navigate, leaving us and oftentimes Foyle more exasperated than satisfied justice is being served. The first few minutes of `Eternity Circle' starts out well presenting a group of people who possess a very dangerous, terrifying knowledge before it kind of fizzles out. The character's seemed only half-hearted, the mystery written poorly and not at all as intelligent as some of the prior chapters. Part of me understands the emotions of this series - a long and hard fought war is still fresh in the mind of these people, and another part misses all the spunk, humor and cleverness of what this series built itself on. Fortunately, the final episode is the best of the group (more on this later) and also has a wonderful conclusion to what seemed an untouchable situation.

Those who are unfamiliar with this series may suffer in places from a lack of knowledge as the show references an American entrepreneur who once escaped Foyle's reach or the history there is between Samantha Stewart (now Wainwright) and Foyle, and has undergone some (glaringly) obvious shortcomings and changes from what was once a more "solid," character relationship. Sam is no longer the same plucky girl we laughed with and ended up loving; now she seems weary and less up for a bit of sleuthing whereas before she was eager and willing to do nearly anything. There is one scene involving her husband's political run that was typical Sam and for a moment, we were again reminded of who the old Sam was and it was a ray of sunshine. She and Adam are cute together (in rare moments of spontaneity) but if memory serves correct, I preferred the actor who portrayed this character in the last series better.

Where the first two installments aren't the best of the bunch (humbly, this is just my opinion and as with any form of entertainment, fans may disagree with that), 'Sunflower' is brilliant! Saving it for last was a great strategy as it whets our anticipation, wanting more and it's all the harder to say good-bye when the screen goes black. (Plus Foyle gets an epically good moment at the end!) It is dark as it covers a frightening period of the war and counteracts these tendencies by offering the human side of the story through Foyle's eyes and his determination to always look for truth and justice in those investigations. Avid fans will pick up on the little changes. They add up and offer new perspectives, sometimes for the better, oftentimes they leave the show worse for the wear as if the war took its toll behind the lens of this history piece of cinematic entertainment - there is a dullness where once this was a bright copper penny; the creativity seems "zapped." That being said, don't let my cynical ramblings ruin anything, any fan of this ITV series (myself included!) will enjoy set seven - it's really the bees knees; Horowitz puts out another solid edition of mystery, mayhem and of course, the keen investigative eye of Christopher Foyle is on the case. That's worth any flaws.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not as good as the first five seasons 22 Aug. 2016
By Amazon Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
With this set, Christopher Foyle transitions from police work to working for the Intelligence Services.

If you want to know more about what happens with Sam and her husband, then, by all means get the final three sets (7-9). It is also interesting to learn more about Mildred Pierce over the final three sets.

But, having said that, I just didn't find this quite as interesting as seasons 1-5. I've been thinking about why this is, and offer the following:

1) Without Milner in the mix, the the chemistry just isn't what it used to be.
2) The clarity of justice is far more muddied; working for the Intelligence Services, it is harder to tell who is right and who is wrong. This reason is probably the major ones. The new shows are more depressing than getting a feeling of justice done. It was satisfying to see Foyle arrest the wrongdoer. It was satisfying to see the "bad guy" caught... but I get no such satisfaction from any of the shows in the sets 7-9.
3) I didn't care for the new opening as much

Let me add that there were still some fun and good moments throughout; it's not all bad -- thus, the three-star rating instead of one. But none of the new shows holds a candle to my all-time favorite, The While Feather (season 1, #2) - the show dealing with Dunkirk was excellent.

Another minor point: I was very shocked and unhappy when the character of Sam first appeared in the first show... the bubbly, happy person was withdrawn and sour... it turns out that there was a reason for this and it turns around, but for a re-introduction, I remember thinking "If this is how Sam will be as a married woman, I don't think I want to watch this".

I'm a huge fan of Foyle's War, seasons (or sets) 1-5, but once was enough for this set. I didn't even bother to purchase season 8 or 9 - I watched them on streaming to know what would happen, but I really wasn't motivated to purchase them.
